What Is The Muslim Brotherhood?

From the International (h/t Instapundit):
The MB is both a political and social movement that advocates moving away from secularism and toward a political and civil society that is organized by the principles outlined in the Qur’an, including the implementation of Shariah law.

Louay M. Safi wrote an article for The American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences in which he describes Shariah law as, “a comprehensive system encompassing the whole field of human experiences. It is not simply a legal system, but rather a composite system of law and morality.”

Shariah law regulates and guides all aspects of life from politics and economics to personal issues of marriage, family, diet and hygiene and is meant to provide a guide for all things concerning morality.

Egypt’s new President Mohamed Morsi has promised to implement Shariah law as his, “first and final” objective.
